Fantasy Who Would Win?

who-would-win?Who would win in a fight between your favorite fantasy characters?

I know what MY favorite thing about fantasy books is: fantasy books often have the most exciting, epic, earth-shattering battles. In worlds where anything is possible, magical creatures, logic-defying supernatural abilities, and even nature itself can turn any old argument into a knock-down, drag-out fight to save the universe. It’s so exciting!

Fight scenes in fantasy books always leave me wondering what I would do if I had the abilities or strengths that the characters have. Would I try to save the world, too? Or would I go on silly adventures instead? Probably a little bit of both!

Today’s Fantasy Books Festival post is all about special abilities. Everyone loves a good collision of fantasy universes, so do a little imagining yourself: who would win in a fight between these fictional characters?

Who are your winners? Why? What are your suggestions for fantasy face-offs? Share in the Comments below!

  1. Nashi Dragneel Fan

    Gandalf obviously!
    Annabeth is more of a fighter than Hermonie.
    Clay because he is not confused or in the wrong form.

  2. Natalia

    I think maleficent & annabeth would win though i’m not sure about the last battle

  3. Erin L.

    1. Gandalf
    2. Neither. They would stop fighting and talk about science, myths, or fighting tactics. If I had to, Annabeth because she is more of a warrior.
    3. Clay.

  4. Harry Jackson/Percy Potter

    2: they would probably just stop the fight as soon as one of them says something smart & then have a whole conversation that will last really long & then harry & percy would wonder in & then they would start talking & then ron & grover would come over to see whats going on & then the weasley & stoll twins wander over & then ginny & rachel e dare & then dumbledore & chiron & then snape & mr. d. & then luna & piper & then jason & seamus & then leo & dean & then nico & collin creevey & then hazel & cho & then all we’ll be left with is a major run on sentence.

    I think Annabeth, because Hermoine and Annabeth both have an equal amount of smarts, but Annabeth also has a drakon bone swords, and has been training for 10 years. She survived in Tarturus. I mean, I know brains beats brawn, but Annabeth has both.

  6. Grace

    Annabeth or Hermione. Even though Annabeth has more advantages and stuff, when it’s a fight of the wits, it would be a fair fight. Since wits always beats brawns, neither of them have really had a match that was right for them. I think that Hermione and Annabeth would be smart enough to reconize eachother’s brains, then team up.

  7. Lindsey

    ANNABETH! DUH! She is so brave, smart, funny, and she has a sword made out of DRAKON BONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Can the others best that? LONG LIVE WISE GIRL!!!!!!

  8. Lindsey

    When Percabeth falls in Tartarus, Annabeth loses her dagger and gets a sword made of Drakon bone that hurts mortals and demigods. So HA! ANNABETH FOR LIFE!

  9. Kyra

    As much as I love all these books,
    I’d have to choose Meleficant, I mean as powerful and crazy awesome Gandalf is, I just think she’d probably win,

    Next, I think, Hermione and Annabeth would just sit under a tree and start talking about smart things while Percy and Harry stand there totally confused, so they’d probably end up dueling instead,

    Lastly, if it came to a fight, I think Eustace would probably win, cause Clay would try to talk it out first, but then of course if Tsunami and Glory are there too, well, MAGICAL DEATH SPIT AWAY!!!

    Btw, like I said before, this is totally un biased, I love all these characters. – whispers – GO POTTERHEADS

    I love The Last Airbender and I hated how terrible the movie was. So now I’m relaly skeptical of all book adaptations, etc. because I hate to see things I love ruined. Speaking of Avatar, make sure you watch Legend of Korra when it comes out. I’ve heard it’s going to be amazing!

  11. Katie

    2. Hermione hands down. Annabeth may be smart,but so is Hermione. She could disarm her with her wand,plus,even IF Annabeth got her dagger,Hermione,she is human,so it would just pass through her…
    3.Clay.No problem.Clay can fight well,even if he’s loving,and Eustace doesn’t stand a chance.

  12. blackarrow698

    Annabeth would own Hermione! Hermione might have magic on her side, but Annabeth has faced down worse opponents. also, COME ON!!! She’s PART GOD!!!! She’s been through Tartarus and back, and fought in two battles! (FYI, I’m EXTREMELY biased. Percy Jackson is WAY better than Harry Potter).

  13. Camila

    Annabeth would beat Hermione any day! Even though Annabeth doesn’t have any powers, she has been at Camp Half-Blood since she was 7. She has gone on many quest, and been in 2 wars! She was one of the 7 for the gods sake! Annabeth would be the win easily! She was the first to ever survive the quest for finding the Athena Parthenon without any powers, only her brain! Now don’t get me wrong, Hermione is awesome, but she wouldn’t stand a chance against Annabeth.

  14. bulldogchatty65

    I know it’s out of 2 for 3 times. but Annabeth wins 1005 of the time for me. This is just in my opinion though, so think whatever you wanna think.

  15. Bluecherries292

    Honestly I think Annabeth would win because she has her invisibility cap, and after all she is the daughter of Athena, goddess of wisdom.

  16. Britany

    Okay, this has nothing to do with who would win, but I have to say, The Blood of Olympus (age 10 and up)came out 2 days ago (it’s October 9 2014) and I see nada about it. Why haven’t you posted anything?

  17. AthenaFearless104

    ITS SOOOO OBVIOUS….. Annabeth vs Hermione! Duh Annnabeth! She defeated Arachne without a wand, she has survived years and years of quests without a single magic potion or spell! Hermione may be clever but I gotta hand it to Annnabeth!

  19. Zaina

    Percy Jackson and the the Olympians forever. Forget about Hogwarts I am going to Camp Half-Blood

  20. Elvenprincess

    Have you ever read The Lord of the Rings? I have not seen Malificent, But I’m pretty sure that Gandalf would be able to beat anyone.


    For the first one, absolutely Maleficent from Kingdom Keepers. She is POWERFUL!!!!!

    For the second one, OH MY GOSH HARD!!!!!! But I guess in the end Annabeth would win. She could easily know how to disarm Hermione and her knife and cap would surely give her an advantage.

    For the third, Clay. Hands down. He may be all sweet and caring and protective, but in a fight, vicious.

  22. Charli7e

    Hermione (Wands have longer range than knives)

    How about a face-off between Murtagh (from Eragon) and Horace (from The Ranger’s Apprentice)?

  23. Anonymous

    Gandalf because he came back from the dead and he knows both magic and hand-to-hand combat. and while I love Annabeth Hermione IS the brightest witch of her age.

  24. Indigobloodhound93

    COMP (Check Out My Profile)
    Malificent Because she is awesome and I love the kingdom keepers and she turns into a dragon
    Annabeth Because she is the daughter of Athena and Athena is very smart
    I don’t know about the last two books

  25. Bobby

    I think annabeth would totally win against heromine because she has her cap of invisibility and strategic thinking.Heromine however known actual hand to hand combat if she were to lose her wand it would be over for her.

  26. silverdragon1590

    Emmet from the lego movie comic books v.s Harry Potter. Or President Buisiness from the lego movie books v.s Voldemort. I think thee Harry Potter guys would beat the lego movie books guys.

  27. Elle

    1. Maleficent
    2. Annabeth
    3. Eustace… as a dragon.

    Or mine:
    Harry Potter versus Percy Jackson?
    Charlie Bone versus Seth from Fablehaven?
